THE owners of a popular Scottish bar and restaurant are saying goodbye after "over 30 amazing years in hospitality".

The Pavement, on Hutcheson Street in Glasgow, is now on the market after the Feber brothers decided to retire.

In a heartwarming social media post on Hogmanay, the pair thanked their staff and customers as they ended their decades-long run in Merchant City.

They wrote: "Tonight Gerry and I have retired from the hospitality industry.

"We’ve had an amazing 30-plus years, thanks to everyone who made it possible.

"We’ve had great staff, tremendous customers and wonderful families that have supported us.

"The Pavement will continue with our great team of staff and new owners so Happy New Year and thanks for the memories.

"Remember to tip your bartenders!"

Dozens of customers commented on the news and wished the Febers a happy retirement.

One person wrote: "End of an era, it's always a pleasure meeting you both...time to relax and enjoy life..."

Another added: "Congratulations to you both on your retirement.

"We wish you all the best for whatever the future holds.

"Thank you for many many great days and nights in Pavement. We'll miss you guys."

Paul Wilkie said: "Sorry to hear you’ve chucked it but it’s time to kick back and enjoy time to yourselves.

"You both have been a credit to the industry and myself and Lorraine have spent many great night with your hospitality.

"All I can say to both of you is that Retirement is the best job you both will ever have. Congratulations."

Scottish Business Agency is now marketing the venue, hoping to fetch a rent of £35,000 to £40,000 per annum from the new leaseholder.

The outlet can seat up to 50 covers with outdoor seating for an additional 40 customers.

A spokesperson for the firm described the unit as a "blank slate for any operator" with potential for any type of cuisine due to its city centre location.

They added: "The previous tenants put a lot of effort into the business, creating Pavement and offering a range of beers different from the surrounding licensed offerings."
